Matt in a few words

I am a highly experienced technical UX Consultant and Digital Delivery Manager with over 20 years working in the UK financial services, recruitment and media industries.

I'm comfortable working directly with stakeholders, clients and technical teams and have helped deliver large scale UX and Digital projects for NatWest, RBS, Lloyds Bank, Vodafone and many other household brands.

More recently I've expanded my creative skills to include Colour Grading for films and documentaries. A useful skill for the media industry.

Experience

JobPage

Digital & IT

CEO Founder / Product Owner (startup)

London Borough of Camden, United Kingdom

January 2011 - March 2017 (6 years6 years and 2 months)

In January 2011 I started a new social enterprise called JobPage - the UK’s first crowd sourced jobs network designed to help young people under 25 find work and employment. Shortlisted for the Onrec "Technology Innovation Award” three years in a row, JobPage was proud to be the winner of the prestigious award in 2014, and featured on the cover of Recruiter magazine in December 2013 as one of the 'game changers' of the recruitment industry.

As the UK's first crowd sourced jobs network our technology powers both JobPage and Tech City Jobs - the leading job board for London's Silicon Roundabout and Tech City.

One of the core objectives of the project is to use technology to make a positive difference to the lives of young people, and give them a helping hand in starting their career.

JobPage is a crowd sourced social jobs network where the community helps each other find work. Jobs are contributed by the community, not just employers and agencies.

Recruitment Entrepreneur

Human Resources

Head of Technology, Digital & Innovation

Westminster, United Kingdom

December 2013 - May 2014 (5 months)

Personally hired by one of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs and investors, James Caan (BBC Dragons' Den) to help him start up and launch his new company, Recruitment Entrepreneur. My brief as interim 'Head of Technology, Digital and Innovation' was to design and rollout a scalable digital recruitment platform that would allow the business to operate and expand quickly.

I had full responsibility for strategy, sourcing suppliers and negotiating contracts, plus devising and developing the company branding and websites for 5 new companies, sourcing and implementing a new cloud-based office software stack, setting up a cloud based VOIP phone system, procuring and launching a new best-in-class Recruitment CRM, and integrating a new marketing CRM with the public facing website. I reported directly to James Caaan, and the company board and worked closely with senior stakeholders within the group.

Recruitment Entrepreneur is now one of the fastest growing new recruitment businesses in the UK, and the latest addition to James Caan's Hamilton Bradshaw portfolio - one of the world's top 30 recruitment businesses, with over 800 staff, 26 offices, and a turnover in excess of £350 million.

Lead UX Consultant

Slough, United Kingdom

August 2014 - October 2019 (5 years5 years and 2 months)

As a client-facing, Lead UX Consultant I was responsible for producing the Online Team's UX (User Experience) deliverables. Key tasks included leading site mapping sessions, UX story card development, sitemap development, idea and mind mapping. My core deliverables were fully functional, interactive wireframes and prototypes produced using a range of tools including Axure, Sketch, Adobe XD and good old fashioned pen and paper.

I introduced into the organisation "Video Prototyping" - a highly engaging process for producing video demos of new digital products long before UX, UI or even full requirements had been scoped out. This was highly effective at getting clients onside... and persuading our internationally diverse project teams to emotionally buy into the project from the beginning.

Exceptional project delivery requires continuous, open dialogue at all levels with across the project from by team members. On a daily basis I worked very closely with the client, internal business teams, UI Designers, UI Developers, Project Managers and analysts.

My main clients included RBS, NatWest, Ulster Bank, Barclays, 5th 3rd Bank (US), Lloyds.
